Marshall Bailey, a Department of Defense Loaned Executive and Management Consultant, gave the Board an overview of the County landfill operations with a power point presentation showing the following three options for the Board to consider:

  1. Continue to provide the landfill service with ongoing adjustments

  2. Provide the service by either public or private contractors

  3. Closure of landfill and ship waste outside of the County

Each Board member voiced their objectives for the landfill operations and the need to reduce costs.

Regarding the Landfill Use Fee, Board members voiced their ideals and desires for this fee.

Mr. Bailey noted the short fall in collecting the needed revenue for the landfill use fee.  He stressed the need for proper data regarding costs for operating the landfill from which the fee schedule for the landfill use fee could be more fairly determined.    

Further considerations related to disposal of waste at the landfill were to eliminate the residential and commercial fee; charge the municipalities a tipping fee; have all county residents purchase a decal, special trash bags or bag tags; and charge market rates for construction/demolition debris. 

After further discussion, Administrator Sealover recommended that he prepare a proposal for the Board to review.

There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 8:00 p.m.
